An Illinois court last week dismissed a class action against Advocate Health and Hospitals Corp. based on the breach of personal health information, finding that the plaintiffs had not adequately alleged impending harm to establish standing.  The court explicitly rejected the reasoning of the West Virginia Supreme Court in a recent decision, which found standing based on the plaintiffs’ legally protected interest in medical confidentiality and privacy in general.  Companies that handle medical and health data may breathe a sigh of relief, but patients worried about the security of their medical information might reach for an antacid.
